William Schouler, A history of Massachusetts in the Civil War: Volume 2, Chapter 12: Norfolk County. (search)
uch for our soldiers that an abstract of their good works would give no adequate idea of them. We have been furnished by Nathaniel Tileston with very full notes of what was done; we can only say that the ladies of no town in the Commonwealth have a more patriotic record than the ladies of Dorchester. The value of the articles contributed by them to the good cause could not have been less than twenty-five thousand dollars, without taking into account their own individual time and labor. Dover Incorporated July 7, 1784. Population in 1860, 679; in 1865, 616. Valuation in 1860, $344,741; in 1865, $358,744. The selectmen in 1861 were Amos W. Shumway, Benjamin N. Sawin, Henry Horton; in 1862, Calvin Richards, Jesse Newell, John Battelle; in 1863, Abner L. Smith, Benjamin N. Sawin, Charles A. Bigelow; in 1864, Abner L. Smith, Charles A. Bigelow, Linus Bliss. The town-clerk all through the war was Abner L. Smith. The town-treasurer in 1861, 1862, and 1863 was Sherman Battel

, Mr. Justice Buller, Sir John Mitford, Lord Ellenborough, Lord Thurlow, Sir William Alexander, Mr. Fearne, Chief Baron Eyre, Lord Camden, Mr. Hargrave, Sir Samuel Romilly, Lord Loughborough (Wedderburne),—judges and lawyers who were engaged in the courts during the last quarter of the last century and the first quarter of the present. Four examples of these sketches are given:— Lord Hardwicke. Perhaps this is the greatest name after Lord Bacon in the English Chancery. He was born at Dover, 1690, and was called to the bar, 1715. At the age of twenty-nine, in 1720, he became Solicitor-General; in 1724, Attorney-General; in 1733, Chief Justice of the King's Bench, as successor to Lord Raymond; in 1737, Chancellor, with the title of Baron Hardwicke (his name was Philip Yorke); in 1754 he was created Earl of Hardwicke. He resigned his high office in 1756, and died in 1764. His influence in the House of Lords is said to have been greater than that of any other person in the king
Historic leaves, volume 3, April, 1904 - January, 1905, John S. Edgerly: and his home on Winter Hill (search)
ked to give you this evening a sketch of John S. Edgerly and his home on Winter Hill. Mr. Edgerly was born in Meredith, N. H., not far from Winnepesaukee, November 30, 1804. He was the son of Samuel Edgerly, who married Betsey Smith, January, 1794. There were twelve children in the family. In the earlier generation, his first ancestor who came to this country was Thomas Edgerly, before 1665. He landed probably at Portsmouth, and was received as an inhabitant of Oyster Bay, township of Dover. In the generation that followed there was much trouble with the Indians, and in some cases they were massacred by them. Like many another young man before and since, when he had reached the years of discretion he was ambitious to see what the larger life of the city of Boston had for him; and I judge he left home for that purpose when about twenty years of age. I presume he had the struggle most people do to find the right thing to do. But he became a stonecutter (physical labor was not c
red silk pelisse, lined with straw-colored silk, made in the extent of the mode, enough to make anybody stare; one black figured levantine silk, and one swiss muslin. My wedding gown is India muslin, a good deal trimmed with white satin. Clarissa Bigelow is to be bridesmaid, and I have bought 35 lbs. of cake of Nichols. The proper little martin box was situated on Harvard street, but they soon removed to Cottage place, a small street leading out of Washington street, on the neck, beyond Dover. It may be that it is one of several quaint wooden houses still standing, sufficiently attractive even now in their tenement-house decadence, and suggestive of the time when they commanded a view of Dorchester and Brookline over the water. To the years spent in this house, Mrs. Child afterwards referred as the happiest in her life. Not long after their marriage a Spanish pirate ship was captured, and brought to Boston. The men were charged with most cruel crimes and were threatened wit
